It’s mid-week again already! Time is flying by for me at the moment because I’ve only got 3 more days left at my current job. So this means I’ve been busy trying to finish everything off as much as possible – I want to leave with everything organised and ready, not having things a mess! When I finish on Friday (woohoo) I will have a weekend of fun times ahead in London with my friends, and then I am off to The Netherlands for about a week to get some much needed rest & relaxing at home with my family. Home for me is the ideal place to unwind and feel at peace. I absolutely love being near the beach and because I haven’t lived in The Netherlands for over 12 years, it means I don’t have much of a social life there – which suits me just perfectly haha.
There have been a few up and downs in my life recently and seeing this quote reminded me that you know what? It’s totally OK to be afraid. We are all afraid – of so many different things; like change, being hurt, love, pain or new beginnings & that list could go on forever.
“My whole life I’ve been telling myself “don’t be afraid.” And it’s only now that I’m realising how stupid that is. Don’t be afraid. Like saying “don’t move out of the way when someone tries to punch you” or “don’t flinch at the heat of a fire” or “don’t blink”. Don’t be human. I’m afraid and you’re afraid and we’re all always going to be afraid, because that’s the point. What I should be telling myself is “be afraid, but do it anyway.” Live anyway.”
So, here’s what I know. I’m afraid. I’m terrified. But I’m also excited. The unknown awaits me. And so, although I don’t know what’s ahead and that’s scary. But I am going to live anyway, and who knows what I’ll find. But I can’t wait to find out :) Happy Hump Day everyone!
